A Certain Kind of Courage
Courage is found in unlikely places;
in shattered dreams and tear stained faces.
Raising your hand in front of the class when you’re so afraid they are going to laugh.
Proclaiming the truth and exposing the lie.
Whispering secrets you’d locked inside.
Choosing to live when your loved one is dead and finding the will to get out of bed.
It’s seeking forgiveness
and asking for help.
It’s forcing a smile and facing yourself.
It’s shaky legs that stand up for the weak and the timid voice
that bravely squeaks.
It’s finding your dark and choosing the Light.
being able to cry.
It’s laying it all at your Saviour’s feet;
all of the messy and none of the neat.
Trusting His strength and His sovereign hand.
Having Peace in your journey without knowing the plans.
